Ugh I can't believe I'm still going with this haha. But I'm here a good hour early for work (in the mall, yes I work at a mall) because my mom also works here and she started an hour before in was supposed to so I figure I just start early. Listening to some music in the mean time. Some special goodness :) with pats wonderful singing voice.
I'm a very audio driven person I realized. I listen to music and I break down all the little bits if it that I can. And what not. And I love when… Continue

So I'm out with friends at a club at AC and its all techno music and in dancing but I'm bored. The music just feels so emotionless...so empty. So I started thinking I'm like a robot and then I started dancing like a robot and then we all started dancing like robots. Then things got fun. Anyway.. Still a little bored and then realized I need to do this blog. So yea I think techno music is sad and empty... I wish they would play something else. change it up a bit..Maybe some =w=. Maybe I need… Continue

Ima cheat a bit an do a double post because I forgot yesterday and I won't have time today because of work and the walking dead haha.
But it's truly eye opening how big Weezer actually is. I just got out of an 90s night at a bar and they had a Weezer cover band. And you can tell thats who the crowd was there for.
And they rocked it I think. I got compliments from the band and from party goers on my tattoo. Got hit on (blech)
Over all it was a good night. It was… Continue

Hey there! I'm still a sniffly mopey mess, but I wanted to try to share some concert tips. Thanks for the suggestions on the last post; I'll include them here.
Pre-show: Stay aware of upcoming show dates. Follow weezer on Facebook, twitter, and Instagram, and it doesn't hurt to do searches, especially on twitter. Sometimes the venue will say weezer is coming before you hear it elsewhere.
Once you know a show date, assess the feasibility. Is it near you, or somewhere you're… Continue

So I don't want it to be tomorrow... I hate Sundays. I just wrote a whole sob story about my Sundays but of course I deleted it. I think some things might be good for sharing and some are best kept private :) Maybe I still need to get comfortable with the whole blog thing. I guess just even typing it out and "letting it out" on paper or computer screen feels good (like someone is listening) but then I feel the need to delete it all. Just wanted to say thanks to Lisa for inspiring me to even… Continue

Well, actually, for me its just a combination of Nightquil/ Dayquil. After a few days rest, I gave in to the allure the double quil combo.
We're looking forward to checking out a new band tonight. Minor Alps. (I haven't heard them yet). Jose from Ozma will be doing the lights. It'll be fun to catch up with a fellow cruiser friend.
Lisa, if you read this, I hope you're recovering well from your cold!
Take care everyone and keep blogging! Speak to you all… Continue

I'm still down with the blogarama but tonight I'm taking a break. A cold has gotten the better of me. Someone pass the tissue and some tea, please? :)
Back tomorrow with concertgoing tips! Do you have any you want to share?

I know I missed a day or two :( been busy. Two days ago my song would have been "my brain is working overtime". Now I am moving on to "Unspoken". I'm in undergrad school pursuing a dream( but at the same time I am a working professional with a masters in an unrelated field with a whole different set of cognitive demands). There is a method to my madness and I just have to be strong because I don't have full support from my spouse on this, he thinks its a joke and rather embarrassing. Married… Continue

I'm not going to have time later as I start work at 4 and get out at 9 today so I'll do this now. At the moment what's weezery in my mind is hearing Pats song on Red Album. Haha
I'm a very audio driven person and hearing good sounds make me happy. He makes very good sounds with his vocal chords lol I would like to hear more. If someone can find me more Pat singing. I would be grateful
Also on my mind is how infectious Weezer kinda is. One of my coworkers posted a status… Continue

Today Rose Tours announced a new design competition for the Weezer Cruise. I gathered up some drawing materials and a sketchbook. I had a few ideas to start out with. I think that I may have settled on one concept.
Despite my art training, I've not entered many design competitions over the years. I've made a decision though to see this project through. If anything I'll have a work of art as an end result.
I was less self conscious about the Instagram competition. I think that I… Continue

Heads up creative folks! Another cool cruise contest - design a poster for the weezer cruise, and win oohs and aahs from weezer fans AND a copy of your own awesome poster signed by the band!

Which makes me excited for the cruise with Karokee. Hopefully I can win some sort of prize? Theres prizes right? lol but anyways I'm wayy to excited for the cruise and all Weezer… Continue

December 2010, I travelled to New York city to hear Weezer perform live for the very first time. My expectations were high. The band of course exceeded those expectations. Their high energy and heartfelt performance across the two nights, stirred something inside of me.
Meeting the people behind the music, was a very wonderful experience. I shook Scott's hand as I introduced myself. I said "I've come from Australia for this show." He said "Wow! That's great Danielle!" Rivers shot me a… Continue

Weezer is reportedly playing a private gig tonight. I bet if you sit quietly and focus, you can feel the Force, I mean Rock, as they melt faces privately. If anyone attended, please post details!
There are at least two contests that could win you a spot on the cruise (which sets sail in fewer than 100 days!). The Ticketmaster one ends soon, so enter fast! Details in my forum post here:… Continue

I just want to talk about how much Weezer is kinda a bonding family type thing. I can sit there and talk for hours with random people on Facebook about it, or with random people on the street, or my old boss lol. It makes me happy to know that something I enjoy can bring other happiness and I have people who talk to me. Being in this fandom has gotten me so many new friends. Kinda similar yesterday's post about my tattoo… Continue

Eeek I have been doing my homework all night and its 2:15 AM!!! With that I'll leave you all with these lyrics .... something better than nothing eh?
Life is moving fast and I'm running out of gas
Time ain't on my side
I'm still in the race and I'm barely keeping pace
But it's worth the ride
Waiting round the corner
There's another sweet surprise
Time flies when you're having fun
Time flies when you live on the run
The harder I go, the… Continue

Hello folks. I'm afraid I'm a little under the weather today. So I'll keep it brief.
I posted a couple pictures from the Vegas show in July. I had only just moved to America from Australia. Michael and I pretty much hit the ground running in terms of live gigs. It's been a really great year for shows and new music releases.
We had the pleasure of heading to Las Vegas to hear Weezer perform. Of course they blew us away with a great setlist. It was lovely to catch up with the… Continue

I grow weary as I have exhausted my supply of Halloween candy that's been fueling my NaBloPoMo enthusiasm. How am I to go on without the oversugared buzz of inspiration?
Coffee? Yes! That will sustain me through November. And through life, probably. :) mmmmm.
So, weezer. Where were we? My inspiration page today was one of many aol-chat interviews with Rivers from the maladroit era, and it made me miss the correspondence of yore. It sure is awesome to be a fan of a band… Continue

This one will be short haha kinda loosing my flow a little bit. I think or it's just a lazy day. Yea lazy day
I just want to comment on how much of a conversation starter my tattoo is. I'll post it below for those who've never seen it. But it's a Weezer tattoo and I get a lot of questions/comments about it.
"You must really like them" yes
"Oh those are cute glasses" thanks *thats not the part to focus on tho*
"What's it for?" It's a band I like "what band" Weezer.… Continue
